10 things you can get up to during lockdown

Well hello to you my reader chums! Lockdown isn't something any of us could have predicted would occur this year, however, for us to keep safe, happy, healthy and motivated, there are plenty of things you can get up to. If you're one of the lucky ones like myself who are able to work from home or have been put on the furlough scheme, these ideas will keep you preoccupied.

10 things you can get up to during lockdown

Make a scrapbook

In a time where I'm unsure of future plans I can make, it's lovely to sit and reminisce about everything I've already done and the places I've visited. One way, I've been doing this is finally starting a scrapbook. Over the years, I've collected lots of things from my travels and days out with family and friends, that it's given me a place to store it all - and get creative, instead of in a box under my bed. It's been lovely digging through the items, getting crafty and sticking all my memories down on a page as in a few years, I can sit and flick through the book.

Take part in home workouts

Working out and exercising is very important, especially for your mental health in a time like this. I'm a massive fan of the gym so have been trying my best to utilise what I have at home to do the same type of workouts. I've got quite a big garden so I'm able to do some cardio that way and have found plenty of different routines on Youtube and IGTV to keep me occupied. Whether it's for 10 minutes or an hour, it'll be good to get your blood pumping around - and you can make do in whatever space you have.

Deep clean your wardrobe (or house)

Having a sort out is something on the back of a lot of people's lists when we get that spare moment - and this is your chance to finally act on it. Whether it's sorting through your wardrobe and finally getting rid of the clothes you never wear, reorganising your kitchen or simply deep cleaning the whole house - it'll be the most satisfying thing you can do, and a workout in itself. I did my wardrobe the other day and feel so much better for it!

Dabble into some home cooking

I love to cook and have found this time great to dabble into fresh cooking a lot more. As I'm working from home, I can use my lunch hour to trial a new recipe, instead of heating up food prep in the microwave and I'm really enjoying that. There is lots of recipe inspiration online - and it can make for a great way to use up things in your kitchen cupboard and get inventive, rather than popping out to the shops too often.

Host a picnic in your garden

Going out and meeting up with people isn't something on the agenda so a fun way to tackle this is hosting a picnic in your garden with those that live in your household. You can use all the food you have indoors, embrace the spring weather and video chat your friends to join in with the fun!

Paint/draw/get creative

Being creative is something that'll help your mind and give you something fun to do. You can try painting, drawing or even creating artwork for your house - or decorate the house. There are so many ways to be creative and having fun with arts and crafts.

Write a story 

Words are a wonderful thing and putting them together for a story is even more beautiful. Whether you're a fan of short stories, poems or have always wanted to start your own novel - get to it. You never know when you'll have this level of free time again so appreciate it and get writing!

Print off your photos and reminisce

I'm a massive fan of printing photos out as it's nice to have your memories in person rather than swiping through a camera roll. Take the time whilst you have it to print out all your recent photos and file them away in an album - and add notes to so in years to come you can look back and remember where that picture was taken and who was in it.

Host a game night via video chat

Games nights are something I love to do with my friends as you can have a few drinks and natter over some board games. However, with social distancing, it can be tricky and that's why you can do it over video chat. Set up a pub quiz for your friends to answer or any other type of game you can think of to play - get inventive and bring the drinks out. We're so lucky to have technology that allows us to have this type of fun during lockdown!

Finally, get through your to-be-read list 

I'm a massive bookworm, however, I let life get in the way when it comes to reading my to-be-read pile. There's always something else on the agenda that I often forget to pick a book up or get too tired to read. However, with this spare time on my hands, I'm trying to spend a lot of it reading and embracing my love of literature again.

I hope you enjoyed this post. What things are you getting up to in lockdown?
